Welcome to mStart

Overview

mSTART-UCR is a group of researchers at the University of California Riverside interested in Mammalian Signal Transduction and Regulation of Transcription. We meet once a month during the academic year to present our latest data and share ideas and techniques. Each meeting two different labs give 30 minute presentations followed by lots of discussion. The setting is informal and dinner is provided.

Purpose

To get to know what other labs on campus are doing in the area of regulation of gene expression in mammalian systems, in particular transcription regulation and signal transduction -- two areas of research that are quickly merging and becoming dependent upon each other
  • To share techniques and expertise.
  • To get feedback on our research
  • To get to know the people doing the work and become familiar with different systems.
  • To foster interactions between the PIs and the other members of the labs.
  • To identify common areas of interest so that training grants and/or Program Project Grants can be written

When and Where

Second Tuesday of the month during the academic year in Statistics Building B650.
